Beautiful experience! We managed to spot Sea Turtles, Dolphins and Whales, although it is not guaranteed it is very common to see Whales and Dolphins but turtles are rare, so they were also lucky. Very kind and helpful staff, very well maintained boat. Another very important thing is that the excursion is reserved for a small group of people, therefore a very quiet situation. Stupendous!

We had trouble finding the boat as the description only said Puerto Colon. We asked around and found out that White Tenerife's jetty is at DOC 8. We were a small pleasant group of 6 people + 2 employees. The crew was very friendly and relaxed, as promised we saw several pilot whales after a few minutes. The boats communicate via radio and tell each other where to find them. The animals were treated with great respect, approached slowly and kept their distance. Food was always provided and there was also a toilet. After observing the animals, we were able to cool off in the clear water of a quiet bay and then drove back. The boat trip alone is worth the trip and the chance of seeing animals is very high.

We were 10 on the boat and had Victor as skipper. He was very responsible and talked about the animals during the trip, which we then got to see quite quickly and were very lucky on the day, because there were dolphins, pilot whales and even the back of a fin whale to be seen briefly. We particularly liked Victor's respectful treatment of the animals, as he didn't chase them and only let us drive slowly as soon as they were in sight. They then came very close to the boat of their own accord. Unreserved recommendation!
